Google Wallet goes to iOS, ditches NFC requirement


Google’s mobile payment service called Google Wallet has finally come to iOS 2 years after it launched on Android. Actually its 2 years to the exact date it was launched on Android.

Google wallet has ditched the requirement for the phone to have NFC because this technology is not native to Apple products. Only Apple products with iOS 6 and above will be able to recieve the update.
The same limitation with the android version which requires the user to be in the United States also applies.

iOS users can now add their credit or debit card details to Google wallet, use their Google Wallet accounts to make purchases as well as be able to send money to another user in the US with an email. Google wallet also supports loyalty cards.

However Google hasn’t stated when it hopes to make Google wallet, global.
